It's tailored for accountants and taught by a CPA who is now a professional certified coach.
It teaches you coaching skills that empower others to tackle their own challenges.
We start with your mindset first, so the skillset is easier to implement.
You will immediately implement what you’re learning, so you can start using coaching on the job.
6 modules of video content with practical assignments to help you immediately apply what you learn:
Chapter 1: Break the Dependence – Understand the problem solver mindset and how it contributes to creating a dependent relationship with your team.
Chapter 2: Other People's Problems – Understand the ways you may be taking on other people's problems without even realizing it.
Chapter 3: The Coaching Mindset – Explore what coaching is (and what it's not!), and learn the three aspects of a coaching mindset that will instantly empower others!
Chapter 4: The 3 Levels of Listening – Expand your listening capacity by understanding the 3 levels of listening.
Chapter 5: Empowering Questions – Instead of providing answers to others, break the dependence by learning how to use empowering questions.
Chapter 6: Conclusion - We'll wrap up the learning for you in a simple, practical way.
You want your team to take more ownership of their work and tackle their own challenges (without you having to hold their hand).
You’re committed to helping the people you work with unleash more of their potential.
You want to use coaching informally in your day to day work.
You’re committed to your own growth as a leader, which means you’re willing to look inward, try new things and reflect on what you’re learning.
You’re willing to invest the time and energy required to make this program work for you.
This course is NOT for you if:
You need Continuing Professional Education (CPE) credits. (Sorry, we don’t offer them!)
What might be possible for you when you function at a higher, more strategic level?
What might be possible for your team when they're less dependent on you and more resourceful in tackling their own challenges?
What might be possible for your organization when the people you lead are more engaged, confident and resourceful?
We know you're busy! The video lessons are short and sweet (less than 15 minutes each). The real magic happens after you watch the lesson, when you reflect on your learning and complete the related exercises. We suggest pacing yourself at one chapter per week. The good news is, you can practice the exercises in your day to day work, so the additional investment of time is minimal and should pay long-term dividends quickly with consistent practice.
We understand that accountability can be a challenge for self-paced programs. Why not sign up with a friend for some outside accountability? You could complete the program together and share what you’re learning with one another. If you’re ready for the additional investment, working with a coach can also help you dig deeper and bring another level of accountability and support...plus, you’d get additional coaching insights from your coach! (We’d be honored to coach you!)
Both programs will teach you professional coaching skills. Think of Break the Dependence as a starter course. We'll touch lightly on some simple coaching concepts (mindset, listening and questions) so that you can begin to use them in your day to day work. The Coach Development Series is a more comprehensive program for those who want to dive deeper into coaching and use it more formally for the career development of others.
